    PROCEEDINGS OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS

    MONDAY, MARCH 29, 1993  

             8TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT PROBATION DEPARTMENT PRESENTATION
                                     (#189) 

    The  Board  of County Commissioners met at 10:00 a.m. in regular session
    with  Scott  Courtney,  Acting  Chief  of  Probation Services.  Chairman
    Hotchkiss  presided; Commissioners Disney and Duvall were present.  Also
    present  were  Gina  Dersham,  Domestic  Violence Evaluation Specialist;
    Roland  Gilmore,  Probation  Supervisor; and Wayne Lawler, Acting County
    Administrator.  Recording Clerk, S. Graves. 

    Mr.  Gilmore  provided  the  history  and  an  overview  of the Domestic
    Violence  Monitoring  Program,  noting  that  previously the program was
    supervised out of the District Attorney's Office.  In 1991, the District
    Attorney  realized  it  was  a conflict of interest to be prosecuting as
    well  as  supervising  offenders  of domestic violence.  Therefore, they
    requested   Community  Corrections  to  supervise  the  offenders  on  a
    temporary  basis, which within one year increased to over 600 offenders.
    Realizing  the  magnitude  of  this  program,  the Community Corrections
    Advisory  Board  was  consulted for ideas how to continue supervision of
    these clients.  Mr. Paul Cooper, Director of Community Corrections, came
    to  the Board requesting an additional FTE; the request was denied.  The
    Advisory  Board  determined  that  Community  Corrections  should not be
    handling  this  program  and  recommended  the  program be dropped.  Mr.
    Gilmore  applied  for  seed money from the State, the program was funded
    for one year, and Ms. Dersham took over the Domestic Violence Program in
    November.   

    Ms.  Dersham presented a flow chart of the agencies involved in domestic
    violence  in Larimer County and noted that over 50% of all households in
    America  experience  some type of emotional, sexual, verbal, or physical
    abuse.   Ms.  Dersham  described  in detail her duties and activities as
    Domestic Violence Coordinator.  

    Mr. Courtney stated that the request today is for the Board to authorize
    funding  to  continue  the domestic violence program, as current funding
    ends  June  30, 1993.  Mr. Courtney presented a budget summary and noted
    that  the  Probation  Department  will  provide in-kind contributions of
    supervision,  administration,  supplies,  and  operating  expenses.  The
    request is for salary and benefits only.  Because of the restrictions of
    Amendment  #1, the Board cannot commit to long-term continuation of this
    program.   The  Board  suggested  that Human Development be contacted to
    ascertain  the  possibility  of obtaining CDBG Funding for this program.

    M O T I O N 

    Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board approve the continuation of the
    Domestic  Violence  Program  until  the  end of the year, at the current
    funding  level;  funds  to  be  derived  from  Unanticipated Carry-Over.


    Motion carried 2 - 1; Chairman Hotchkiss opposing.  
  
    Commissioner  Duvall  expressed appreciation to Ms. Dersham for her work
    and commended her for using volunteers as much as possible. 

    The meeting adjourned at 10:45 a.m.

                                     (#190) 

    The  Board  of  County Commissioners met at 9:30 a.m. in regular session
    with  Laurel Kubin, Director of Extension.  Chairman Hotchkiss presided;
    Commissioners  Disney  and  Duvall  were present.  Also present were Tom
    Brown,  4-H Youth Coordinator; and Bob Scott, Advisory Committee Member.
    Recording Clerk, S. Graves. 

    Ms.  Kubin  thanked  the Board for their support in contacting the State
    Legislators  requesting minimal cuts be made in Extension.  As a result,
    Ms.   Kubin  noted  that the percentage cut to extension as an agency is
    not  as  bad as the percentage cut to other agencies; the Urban Programs
    will  receive a $136,500 cut, and 4-H will not be cut.  The cuts will be
    in horticulture, agriculture, family consumer education, etc.   

    Mr.  Brown  provided an update on the 4-H Programs in Larimer County and
    reported  on  the  annual 4-H Carnival held last Saturday.  The Carnival
    was  attended  by 12,000 persons; $23,000 was raised and another $10,000
    is  anticipataed.   This  money  is  used  to  finance  4-H Programs for
    scholarships,  award  trips,  leadership  development,  and  to  provide
    educational   experiences   for   members   and  leaders.   Ten  college
    scholarships  are  given  each  year.   There  are  1,535 4-H members in
    Larimer  County,  ages  5  to  18, involved in over 3,000 projects.  Mr.
    Brown  stated  that  the  strength  of  the program is their volunteers.

    Mr. Brown described several new programs: Shooting Sports, which teaches
    safety;  "Dare To Be You", which develops self-esteem; Day in Denver for
    younger  4-H  members  to  visit  the  Capitol,  Mint, Museum of Natural
    History,  and possibly meet the Governor; and a Meats Education Program.
    This  summer,  two 2-day Day Camps will be held and over one-half of the
    participants  will  be non 4-H members.  Mr. Brown noted that 4-H has an
    Exchange  Program  and  members  must  earn  their  money thru Community
    Service Projects.  This year the Exchange members will be visiting North
    Carolina and Washington, D.C.   

    In response to questions from the Board, Mr. Brown stated that each Fall
    a  4-H  flyer  is  distributed  to  every child in 3rd thru 6th grade to
    acquaint  them  with  4-H;  Commissioner  Disney  asked  if  it would be
    possible  to  incorporate  a  program  educating  the  youth  how County
    Government   works   and  the  duties  of  a  County  Commissioner;  and
    Commissioner  Duvall  wondered if a program about horse psychology could
    be introduced.

    Recording Clerk, S. Graves. 

    Mr. Lloyd provided an overview of the duties and functions of the Forest
    Service  in  Larimer  County and noted that the relationship between the
    County and the Forest Service is one of cooperation in the management of
    the  land.   Mr.  Lloyd  stated  that  fifty percent of Larimer County's
    1,689,000  acres is publicly owned, and the Districts are: Estes-Poudre,
    and Red Feather.

    Mr. Lloyd reviewed the respective responsibilities of the Forest Service
    and   the   Sheriff's   Department  with  regard  to  jurisdiction,  law
    enforcement,  road  maintenance, fire management, etc.  Mr. Lloyd stated
    that the Forest Service has an excellent relationship with the Sheriff's
    Department. 

    Commissioner  Disney  noted  that  a  Conference  on the future of Rocky
    Mountain  National Park will be held at the Aspen Lodge in Estes Park on
    September  17  &  18,  1993  and  issued an invitation to Forest Service
